Josh Grant – Shoulder
Comment: Grant crashed hard in practice at Phoenix, landing on his shoulder. It was enough to prevent him from racing the night show. Grant had an MRI that didn’t indicate a need for surgery and he was able to tough it out at A2. He will be racing in Oakland.

Davi Millsaps – Torn ACL
Comment: Millsaps, the 450SX runner-up the past two seasons, crashed while practicing at Milestone and tore his ACL. It’s the first injury Millsaps has ever had on that leg, as the knee injury that cost him the 2013 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship was on the other leg. He had surgery in mid-December. At Anaheim 2, Millsaps announced that he hopes to return to racing in Atlanta.

Broc Schmelyun – Broken Legs
Comment: Pennsylvania privateer Broc Schmelyun will miss all of Monster Energy Supercross after breaking both legs in a late December practice crash. “This is a very unfortunate injury at a time where Broc has really worked hard and prepared himself for the supercross season in the premier class," said Gary Luckett, Traders Racing team owner.

Shane Sewell - Broken Foot
Comment: Westville, Indiana's Shane Sewell broke his foot at Anaheim 1 during the second 450SX heat, but hopes to be back on the bike in about a month.

Eli Tomac - Left Shoulder Rotator Cuff Contusion
Comment: Tomac came together with Jake Weimer on the opening lap of his A1 heat race and hurt his shoulder in the crash, which forced him to miss the remainder of the night. Tomac hasn’t raced since, and while he has resumed riding, he’s not race-ready quite yet. He will miss Oakland.


Blake Baggett – Broken Foot

Joey Savatgy – Broken Wrist, AC Separation, Broken Ribs and Partially Collapsed Lungs
Comment: The 2013 SX Rookie of the Year is expected to miss some time on the Eastern Region after a huge crash at Milestone in early December resulted in a broken wrist, an AC separation, broken ribs and partially collapsed lungs. Rockstar Energy KTM has signed Cole Thompson in case Savatgy won’t be ready for when the racing begins in the East. Thompson will also ride the 350 S-FX at a few 450SX races on the West Coast and the 250 on the East.
